Spring planting

Ed's tractor makes plowing and harrowing so easy. 

The ground is so soft in those areas that you sink into the soil over your ankle. I lose my boots !

Seed potatoes ~each eye will make a potato plant. Just cut enough of the potato to be food for the eye while it establishes itself.These are red pontiacs. We also planted Kennebac whites.

Make a nice row.Hoe over and hill up the soil.

Cats love the freshly plowed soil. So do the chickens and turkeys. It makes searching for bugs and worms so much easier.
